If you're saying what I think you're saying, then with the sectors-based implementation, the territories of two agents would meet along a "contested space" boundary. Even though the two zones don't merge, building a station closer to the boundary will reinforce the spread of your ownership through those sectors, driving back the boundaries of their territory and allowing you to claim more sectors. This should also work with a pure metaball approach, though.Cornflakes_91 wrote:i agree with the most of this EXCEPT for the "similar zones with different owners dont merge" part, as i dont see how we could ever get superiority in a zone if we displace it somewhere else when we build a concurrent building next to it.
basically negating everything what i suggested about ownership and ownership changes. which, as i read out of the devlog, is something josh wants to include
